The Nordic people have been knitting socks and mittens for centuries, the earliest sign of knitting dates back to the 13th century. 

Åse and Ted Öjbro produce their beautiful knitwear in Ulricehamn, Västergötland, Sweden. They are passionate about keeping the traditional art of jacquard knitting alive. Their striking designs are steeped in tradition and history yet fit into any modern-day wardrobe.

The striking Skaftö design is inspired by the fishermen of Skaftö, an island north of Gothenburg famous for its fishing industry.
